My models on exhibition at BOS 50th Anniversary Convention 2017 in Stratford-upon-Avon, UK

My models at BOS50 (50th Anniversary Convention of British Origami Society) 2017

This is my model exhibition at BOS50, the 50th Anniversary Convention of British Origami Society in Stratford-upon-Avon. A few of my older models are there but most are new designs. You can find close-up pictures of many of these models in my flickr stream.

The event took place on September 1st-3rd, 2017, and I enjoyed it very much. The anniversary attracted lots of interesting guests, both among the special guests and among regular attendees. The organizers also put a lot of work into making the meeting very enjoyable. I was happy that there was plenty of room for the model exhibition and the exhibition review (into which my Bed of Nails 3D Tessellation was selected) was an interesting addition. I also found the panel discussion with special guests to be a great idea.

My display at Outdoor Origami Meeting 2017

My display table during Outdoor Origami Meeting in Kraków. The school which kindly hosts the convention free of any charges provides plenty of room for the exhibition so I could fully display the last year of my origami work.

My models on exhibition at Origami Deutschland German Convention 2017 in Bonn, Germany

My exhibit at German Origami Convention, Bonn 2017

My exhibit at Origami Deutschland convention in Bonn, Germany. Unfortunately, the space for model display was very limited, so I could only show a few models well while others ended up on one big pile in two boxes in the back row. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the convention very much and was happy to meet both old and new fellow folders.

My models displayed at the convention of Polish Origami Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Origami, PTO) 2016 in Warsaw, Poland

My exhibition at the convention of Polish Origami Society 2016

My exhibition at this year’s convention of Polish Origami Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Origami, PTO) which took place in Warsaw. Thanks to the venue being really close to where I live, I was able to show some of my modular skyscraper models which are big yet fragile and would be hard to transport a longer distance. It was a fun convention with free folding sessions ending well into the night.

A pile of new origami designs waiting to be clean-folded and properly documented

A heap of my new origami designs

This heap of new origami designs is waiting on my table until I can make clean folds and document them properly. Unfortunately I seem to add new ideas to the prototype pile faster than I can clean fold older designs…

Fading colors in origami Sonobe units after paper was aged for 12 years

Fading colors — degradation of paper over time

In July 2015 I decided to get rid of some old origami models which had faded beyond looking nice. On these Sonobe units retrieved from some modular assembly one can well see the deterioration of colors in inexpensive paper over time. The parts with vivid colors were hidden below additional layers of paper and so were protected from most sunlight. The bleak parts are those which were exposed to light (it’s probably ultraviolet radiation which is responsible for most of the decay).

Since I sign and date most of my works, I was able to check when the model was folded — November 23rd, 2002 — which means this paper was aged over 12 years. This is paper from a 9×9 cm note cube, most probably from Herlitz.
